Berlin: Dutchman Arjen Robben had been ruled out of action for roughly six weeks owing to a cut in his right knee, the Bavarians announced. The German giants beat Augsburg 2-0 at the DFB Cup, where Robben got a deep flesh wound in his right knee.
Robben suffered the cut following a tackle with Augsburg's custodian Marwin Hitz inside the box, says a club press release Thursday, reports Xinhua.
"Arjen Robben has sustained a deep laceration extending into the knee joint. The impact of one of the opposing player's studs on the thighbone in the right leg has caused extensive haemorrhaging," club doctor Hans-Wilhelm Mueller-Wohlfahrt told the club's official homepage.
